In short: Challenging race but very enjoyable - no PB for me but not far off In full: I really enjoyed this race as its a very local one for me and Wollaton Park is a beautiful place in run in. It was a challenging race butI think that's a good thing. The organisation was also very good Date of review: April 4, 2013
In short: Great race, very well organised. In full: It was the third year for me. Its a great race to take part in, no traffic and great organisation with well supportive marshals. There are a couple of inclines, but nothing that should hurt too much. Will be back next year - many thanks Notts Athletics! Date of review: April 3, 2013
In short: Pretty, traffic free, steady yet challenging and very well organised and marshalled. Really enjoyed it and could easily see myself back there next year! In full: It was windy and bitterly cold, (even lapsing into light snow on occassion) but that did little to effect the warm feeling I got from this race. The location was very pretty, entirely based in the grounds of Wollaton Park and I liked the mix of firm grass and tarmac paths. A decent flat, decending and ascending route made for a nicely challanging course without being too taxing and the fact it was over two laps meant you could really plan and strategise your finish as you went round for a second time. I took three minutes of my PB time and can only put that down to the extra spring in my step that I got from the excellent organisation, supportive Marshals and well thought out route. I don't often do the same race year after year as there are so many to choose from, but I may well make an exception for this one! Well done to everyone involved. Date of review: April 2, 2013
In short: A cold hilly 2 lap race In full: A nice if hilly race a little cold but fine once running. I was a disappointed not to get a bottle of water and a snack of some description, it was a 10K after all Date of review: April 1, 2013
In short: Great stuff, even with the rain In full: Great run, well organised, easy to find, free car parking and fairly popular. It was the second year for me and I'm looking forward to next year already.
It got a little tricky underfoot with the rain making things just a little slippy.
